sailandoar is on a distinguished road
I suspect that they mean you should be able to pull the fuling line and roll the sail up 'by hand' when there is not a lot of wind pressure/tension on the sail. At the dock or drifting in a near calm, if you have to use the winch then something is binding/draging and adjustment or lubrication is likley called for. One of my favorite and most productive research methods is to ask, "can I please speak to someone in technical support". Works like a charm about 85% of the time.
